HFVS: Music of the World Episode with Guest DJ, Keith Terry (Radio Show/Podcast)

Music of the World Episode with Guest DJ, Keith Terry

Listen to Podcast:

Keith Terry from Crosspulse Ensemble is our Guest DJ this week! Keith’s program is about World Music AND Music of the World – not only songs from artists around the planet, but sounds of the planet, itself – from the calls made by insects and birds,  to  atmospheric sounds created by lightening.  Plus some found sound — music created by the sounds we don’t always think of as musical, such as fog horns and trains, even bricks.  Join Keith in this exploration of some new and unusual ways of creating and listening to music.
